Understandably, politics may come up when people talk Cuba. We accept that and believe it's both naive and unhelpful to pretend it's not a part of travel and Cuban experience.

However, if you wish to start topics on Cuban or U.S. politics then you have come to the wrong place, as this is primarily a forum for travellers and locals to exchange advice and connect.

If you'd like to post travel related news items please post a couple of brief paragraphs with a link to the complete article.

I was in Cuba two years ago and there was no feasible cell service there and internet was available via wifi at the big hotels and telephone company with the use of a $6 / minute internet service card

That internet arrangement worked well enough for what it was ... but does anyone have any recent experience with Cuba's cell or internet service situation which indicates the above has substantially changed recently?

thanks in advance.

Is it necessary book all casa particulars in advance from the because casa bookings are heavy and scarce if you try to get them once you are traveling in Cuba?.

Last time I went to Cuba in March two years ago , I booked my first casa particular in advance in Havana and then on I just very flexibly booked casas as I traveled one at a time.

But with the increased…

We had a fabulous time in Vinales staying with Orlando and Yoania Morales. We booked it through Javier at AirBnB but the family also has an email orlandomorales@nauta.cu. which can be used in Cuba (not the US). These hosts were fantastic--kind, warm, utterly sincere. The attached apartment we stayed in was immaculate and brand new and the included breakfast was delicious and bountiful. We also had the option of dinner which I highly recommend--Yoania is a fantastic cook--the only problem is…
